Natural flu remedies to combat a nasty flu (no medication needed!)

(Credits) These natural flu remedies will help you combat the flu without taking medication. Can’t stop sneezing? Body feels feverish, but your hands are downright clammy? Having muscle aches, and feeling incredibly fatigued? You’re probably down with the flu. It’s easy enough to keep your home stocked with plenty of medication, so you can be prepared whenever you contract a nasty bout of flu. But if you’d rather not resort to taking pills, there are also several natural flu remedies which can help you get better. Read on to find out more! #1: Lemon, honey & ginger tonic 1 (Credits) Top on our list of natural flu remedies? A power-packed lemon, honey and ginger tonic which will help you recover in no time. When you’re having a nasty flu, there’s nothing quite as comforting as taking a nice, long shower and then bundling yourself up and sipping on this health tonic. You’ll get plenty of Vitamin C from the lemon, the ginger will help you clear your sinuses, and the honey will soothe your sore throat and suppress coughing. Here’s how to make this health tonic: Peel and roughly chop up a 1-inch piece of ginger root. Add the chopped ginger, a cup of water, 1 teaspoon of honey, and the juice from half a lemon to a small pot and let it simmer over medium heat. Strain the mixture into a mug, and enjoy! #2: Multivitamins 2 (Credits) If your flu is particularly persistent, and you’ve been battling it for a while now, chances are your immunity system will have taken a hit. Apart from using the lemon, honey and ginger tonic to relieve your symptoms, it’s also important to use other natural flu remedies to boost your overall immune system. We’re talking about multivitamins, of course! When it comes to multivitamins, there are many options available. Make sure you get something which has plenty of zinc, vitamin C, and vitamin D3, all of which boost immunity; ideally, your multivitamin should also contain the various vitamin Bs, which help fight fatigue and weakness. #3: Relief sprays Not all flu relief sprays are made equal - we particularly like this one, Raw Flu Fighter Relief Spray, from Australian brand Amazonia. 3 This flu spray consists of Andrographis (a herb which frequently used in the management of colds, flus and mild upper respiratory tract infections), thyme (which assists in the removal of excess catarrah of the upper respiratory tract), and other natural ingredients. Consumption is easy - simply shake before use, and take 13 sprays into your mouth once daily. This will help you to relieve chest and sinus congestions, and eliminate runny noses.
